Connexions Vacancy service
Thousands of people use our free on-line vacancy service every month to find a job or Apprenticeship opportunity. You can too!

The 2006 Employment Equality Regulations removed upper age restrictions for jobs and Apprenticeships. This means that anyone of legal working age can apply for vacancies on our website.

Useful tips to help you with your application
If you're sending your application in an A4 envelope, remember to affix the correct 'Large Letter' stamp or have it checked and weighed at a Post Office. Employers may choose not to pay the excess postage levied by Royal Mail on underpaid items, so your application might not get the chance to be considered.
Our leaflet Useful tips to help you complete your application form will help you to complete the paper application form.
